Outdoor activity centre raises over £6,000 for local charities.
Somerset outdoor activity centre Mill on the Brue has raised over £6,000 for local charities during February and March.
On Sunday March 3, a curry lunch and prize auction raised over £3,000 for St Margaret’s Hospice in Yeovil.
Two weeks earlier over 100 people attended a Literary Lunch with Victoria Glendinning, biographer, critic, broadcaster and novelist. This raised £1,700 for Futures for Women, a charity that supports women of all ages who want to improve their career prospects through training and further education.
A Reels Ball on February 9, raised £1500 which was split between MacMillan Cancer Care and St. Margaret’s Hospice.
Tricia Rawlingson Plant from Mill on the Brue explains: “Supporting local charities is really important to us, whether we organise events ourselves or support others by providing them with a venue to hold fundraisers. We feel it’s an important way of contributing to our local community.”
Tricia’s fundraising will continue with a 72km trek in the Indian Himalayas in April to raise money for St Margaret’s Hospice.
“I’m doing the trek in memory of my husband, Tony, who died in 2009. He spent two weeks in St. Margaret’s Hospice and it was the best experience possible.”
